hagel, the guy who understands war. >> hagel is somebody who considered people -- >> but hagel is there to deconstruct defense contract spending. >> he didn't talk clockishly. he didn't talk about israel. he didn't talk about anything that we usually talk about that we've got to defend ourselves. it was more like -- it was peaceful. it was almost pacifist, almost. >> well, i think he's choosing -- this first term, he toggled back and forth between the sentiments of cairo and the reality of what we did in libya, for example. we put boots on the ground there. we supported what was going on there. so sometimes he's shown a willingness to use military force to change the facts on the ground. >> assuming -- >> what he's doing, he's going back to his original commitment with which he began the first term. >> he's speaking about ending wars and the country's national security today. what sounded to me a shot of neoconservative thinking. >> we, the people still believe that enduring security and lasting peace do not require perpetual war. but we are also heirs to those who won the peac

run by liberals and democrats, against hagel. but these liberals against hagel are anonymous, telling the press they are "allies" with the obama administration, who are staying anonymous because they fear retribution or fear from the white house. this whole thing just seems off, right? i mean there are obviously two intentions with setting it up like this. they're trying to convey the impression that this is a white house who attacks and tears up anybody who disagrees with them. that is the way the right likes to think about this white house, that is the way they operate. they may be more effective if they did, but that is not what they do. more broadly, they're asserting there is broad opposition to chuck hagel, we're just not allowed to know who it is. i'm not buying it it, i say bull-pucky, i might be wrong, but i call bull-pucky. and if i am wrong, there is an easy way to prove it. come out, come out, whoever you are. if you are not bill crystal or somebody like that, i'll be the first to admit i'm wrong. but i don't think i'm wrong. this is not a liberal group, it is a r

. i think that's unfortunate. i don't think it has any place in politics. >> chuck hagel, you were very tepid on "meet the press" a couple of weeks ago. >> i was. >> now you've met with him, you're more comfortable, you'll support him? >> i am. >> what changed? >> i said on your show that i had real concerns. i spent 90 minutes with him. i asked him very specific questions on the things that troubled me. his answers were forth right. and they were answers that alayed my concerns. should we keep every option on the table to prevent a nuclear iran? yes. i went further. i said, do you think we can tolerate a nuclear iran? he said no. and i said to him, well, then, if we had to use military as the only choice, would you? he said yes. second, i asked him hezbollah and hamas, should they be labeled terrorist groups? yes. should israel be forced to negotiate with them if they don't recognize israel's right to exist, if they don't renounce violence? no, absolutely. third, sanctions. do you support increased sanctions? would you support unilateral sanctions in? yes. there were differences b

chuck hagel is confirmed as his replacement. but i do want to make the point here, there are going to be growing pains. and we're hearing the same kinds of arguments oh, my god, you know, women are going to be integrated into the military academies. oh, my god, gays in the military. that's going to destroy unit cohesion. >> that's right. >> but those thinking soldiers, again, even the most hard-bitten combat veterans say this is inevitable. and i just want to point out what one combat trainer who is an army ranger, you know, one of the toughest jobs in the u.s. military, when i asked him, what about this argument that a 10-pound woman can't drag a 200-pound wounded comrade off the battlefield? and he looked at me and he said, how many times do you see a 130-pound man drag a 200-pound -- you know, and that's the sense of the argument. that women and men will work together just like the men work together. and the only thing different about this, while women have been drawn into combat, is this will be policy. this will be official. they will have ground combat roles. and what this wi

hagel is making the rounds on capitol hill trying to win over support for his nomination as defense secretary. today he met with senator john mccain who has been a vocal critic of the obama administration. on a lot of fronts. late this afternoon he and hagel had a frank and candid conversation in which they discussed some of mccain's concerns. mccain also called hagel an old friend. it's worth remembering both men are veterans of the vietnam war, and that's certainly a band of brothers. we'll be right back. >>> january 22nd, 1973 will stand out as one of the great days for freedom and free choice. this allows a woman free choice as to whether or not remain pregnant. this is extraordinary. >> welcome back to "hardball" that clip is from nbc news nightly 40 years ago when the supreme court handed down that roe v. wade decision. today our brand-new nbc news/wall street journal poll shows that for the first time in the history of the poll, our poll, a majority, 54% say abortion should be legal always, or most of the time. and the percentage of people who say roe v. wade should not be ov

secretary of state in chuck hagel and john kerry who are known for favoring a light footprint. do you think that they are going to take the action that you believe is needed? >> well, i look forward to raising these questions with them when i get a chance to attend their confirmation hearings in the case of senator john kerry or to meet with him in person in the case of senator hagel. i met this morning with senator kerry to give him an update on this trip. a number of the senators who were on the trip with me met with him, and i am determined that we make certain that the united states invests in the kind of forward leaning relationship in africa that will take the fight to al qaeda in africa and that will invest in stability in countries where if we don't partner with them effectively, they may slip into the kind of state that mali's in now. just a few short years ago, mali was viewed as a stable, democratic ally of the united states and it's come unwound fairly quickly. i chaired a hearing on december 5th to look at mali and to look at the situation there and try and raise its profile. i

of democrats have been looking for this. and it does show that you this perhaps, i think the hagel nomination is a shot at the neocons who clearly did not want that. i think this is a direct frontal assault on a fixed position on the nra. very brave stuff he is doing. >> this president who stood there and said, we don't to have choose between investing in our kids and medicare. this is president who invented time travel. he has figured out how to travel into the future and steal our own children's money. and he did that. but yet he is the one saying that of course, republicans just took a shot at republicans for -- >> here's what i'm wondering. i hear you. i hear both of you. i do think this is -- i wonder -- a tactical shift. last go-around, he got pushed around so much by the republicans. this time he is going to do the pushing. and he knows, if he is going to have a legacy piece, if it is going to get the legislation that gets through, it will have to be deficits. nixon in china. who can reform entitlements but a democratic president? he is starting where he is. he is starting with the bas

. i think he's put together potentially a very good team. i think kerry and hagel and brennan and in a curious way now as the presidential adviser, but his very much interest in affairs with a team that's going to focus more on the problems on the ground. that is to say basic fundamental strategic challenges that are confronting us. mrs. clinton was terrific. i like her. i respect her. she was enormously energetic. but she had more of a visionary agenda, global warming, global problems, suffering, injustice, jends jendser gender issues, rheau is rights. >> all extremely important. >> but if we don't deal with the problems confronting us right now, we'll never get to dealing with the big problems in the end. so i am hoping that this new team will really address serious problems that obama didn't finish addressing. >> the theory of the case for this new team now because the reality is that we're going through a transition into a post-superpower world. we are still a superpow er, but there comes a point where we're not. and if you study obama and look at him, he wants to avoid wa
